Question: What is PSYCH-K?

Answer: PSYCH-K is a unique and direct way to identify and change subconscious beliefs that perpetuate old habits of thinking and behaving that you would like to change. It is a simple process that helps you communicate with your subconscious mind so you can change beliefs that limit your self-esteem, relationships, job performance, and even your physical health! Popularly characterized as a spiritual process with psychological benefits, the word psych is an abbreviation for psychology. And, is also a variant spelling of the word psyche. The dictionary definition of psyche is mind, soul, or spirit. The overall goal of PSYCH-K is to help you free your mind from beliefs that limit your recognition of yourself as divine beings having a human experience.

Question: How Did PSYCH-K Come To Be?

Answer: PSYCH-K was originated in 1988 by Robert M. Williams, M.A. It was a response to the frustration that came with the realization that typical counseling techniques, which rely almost exclusively on “insight” and “motivation,” seldom create real and lasting changes. Rob has spent nearly 20 years developing and improving PSYCH-K. His background in business and psychotherapy creates a results-oriented approach to personal change. PSYCH-K was inspired by a variety of processes, some contemporary and some ancient. It deals with the part of the mind called the subconscious, which is capable of creating dramatic and lasting changes quickly and easily.


Question: How Does PSYCH-K Work?

Answer: PSYCH-K is a unique process evolving from years of split-brain research and hundreds of sessions with individuals and groups. It creates a receptive state of mind that dramatically reduces resistance to change in the subconscious. The subconscious mind can be accessed in a way similar to a personal computer. PSYCH-K works as a kind of “mental keyboard” — a user-friendly method of communicating with the subconscious mind that is simple, direct, and verifiable.


Question: How Does PSYCH-K Differ From Other Self-Help Modalities?

Answer: PSYCH-K differs from other modalities in a variety of ways. While all modalities have value, there are important differences that make a difference. These differences are addressed in Chapter 7 of PSYCH-K…The Missing Piece Peace In Your Life. To view the contents of Chapter 7,The Differences That Make a Difference.


Question: What is a PSYCH-K Balance?

Answer: A PSYCH-K Balance is a process designed to create balanced communication with both hemispheres of the cerebral cortex. This “whole-brain” state is ideal for reprogramming the subconscious mind with new self-enhancing beliefs that support your goals rather than defeat them!


Question: Why Haven’t I Heard Of PSYCH-K Before?

Answer: Until 1997, Rob was the only person teaching PSYCH-K. Now there’s a growing number of hand picked Certified Instructors personally trained by Rob Williams or Larry Valmore, Certifying Agent for The PSYCH-K Centre International. In short, you’ll be hearing a lot more about PSYCH-K in the future!


Question: How Can PSYCH-K Help Me?

Answer: Your subconscious beliefs establish the limits of what you can achieve. If your life feels like a car being driven with one foot on the accelerator and one foot on the brake, chances are you have a conflict between your conscious goals and your subconscious beliefs. This kind of conflict shows up in relationships, job performance, self-esteem, athletics, weight loss, prosperity, even your physical health. If you are facing challenges in any of these areas, you should contact  Dr. Christine Garvey, DC at


Question: Can PSYCH-K Help Me At Work?
